I don't know much about this route but I figured it should be mentioned...

This route climbs the moderate face left of Dead Sea Equestrian and right of Curly for President. The crux comes when you pull ad "overlap" move onto the left face. I have been told it is a fun route though often wet.


Parking lot wall left of Dead Sea Equestrian. Start just below a flake and pull onto the flake.


Bolts counted seven from ground.

I know this is a fairly poor description just figured it should be mentioned. I will hopefully have better route description later this week or anyone should feel free to fill me in on info for the route

Many spinning bolts, I hand tightened them and a friend tried to use his nut tool wrench to do the same. Be wary of these, they were super loose and likely will be again in the future.

I just climbed this route yesterday and the bolts are still spinning away. I did not have a wrench to try and tighten. Be cautious!
